The terrifying first look of Cadaver, starring Amala Paul in the lead, was unveiled a year ago on her birthday. It had the actress seen having food from a lunch box in an autopsy room. The cold-blooded character she plays in the film doesn't seem to be affected by the petrifying ambience as a dissected corpse is spotted lying behind her in a bed.
Anoop S Panicker has directed the thriller flick which is based on a real incident which happened in Kerala. Harish Uthaman, Athulya Ravi, Riythvika, Munishkanth and Ramesh Khanna among others essay key roles in the movie which has been bankrolled by Amala herself.
Though there was speculation regarding the film's direct-to-OTT release last year, makers had quashed it as a rumour. But they have now announced that the movie will be released directly on Disney+ Hotstar. However, they are yet to announce the release date.
The movie's story revolves around Bhadra, a police surgeon, who has been assigned the case of horrifying serial killings. How she tracks down the assassin with evidence gathered in an unusual manner forms the rest of the story. Abhilash Pillai has penned dialogues for the project which has cinematography by Aravind Singh and editing by San Lokesh.
Ranjin Raj and Rahul have handled music direction and art direction respectively for Cadaver which has stunt choreography by Vicky. Cadaver will be Amala's first release this year; her last outing was Pitta Kathalu, a Telugu anthology which was dropped on Netflix.
The Tamil anthology Kutty Story which was released before the second wave of pandemic was her previous theatrical release. Cadaver is the actress' first production venture in her career spanning 13 years. SonyLIV's Tamil anthology The Victim will be her next release.
